CSX Radio Traffic from the 1990's

Unread postby trnwatcher » Sat Aug 26, 2017 5:01 pm

I've finally got around to digitizing some recordings I made back in the 1990's of scanner chatter from CSX's Wyoming Yard and it's surrounding routes. These MP3's have been digitized from the original cassette tape recordings. Back then I used a Sony voice activated pocket cassette recorder placed in front of a desktop scanner. I had tried using the MIC input jack on the recorder but the voice activated recording only worked on the built in microphone.

I've not edited these or "cleaned" then up in anyway other than cropping them to about 15 minutes of play time each. The clicks and pops you hear are partly from the cassette recording and some the scanner noises. Here are the first 2 recordings so.

Most of the radio traffic is between the East Tower and various trains\yard jobs in and around Grand Rapids. There are CSX and CP trains, dispatchers long retired as well as train symbols long not used anymore.
